Depending on the type of care you receive, you may receive bills from your physician, consulting physicians who gave advice concerning your care, or physicians who helped interpret your test results. Questions regarding these bills should be forwarded to each physician’s billing office.
Inpatient Stay vs. Outpatient Observation Hospital Stay
When an illness, condition, or necessary service does not require inpatient hospitalization; yet, your physician has requested that you be assigned to a room and bed for monitoring until there can be a more definite determination regarding your healthcare needs - this may be classified as an outpatient observation hospital stay.
At intervals during your stay, your physician will make an evaluation as to whether you will require “admission” to the hospital as an inpatient. If you are not admitted and you have insurance, the hospital will file the claim for you under Outpatient Services as an “outpatient observation stay” and you will be responsible for your deductible and any non-covered charges.
Any co-pays that are the responsibility of the patient will be collected at the point of service in the Emergency Department and outpatient services.
